The Montana Outdoors Coalition exists to protect Montana's unique outdoor heritage by standing up for outdoor recreation activities of all kinds—from hunting, fishing, and trapping, to snowmobiling and trail riding, to birdwatchers, hikers, backpackers and enthusiasts of all sorts of other outdoor activities.
We are not a green decoy group—we do not take money from out-of-state environmental groups who do not share Montana values. The Montana Outdoors Coalition is made up of real sportsmen and sportswomen who are dedicated to protecting outdoor recreation in Montana.

True or False: Montana's Congressional delegation favors privatizing federal lands?
False. All three members of our Congressional delegation have consistently been on the record against privatizing public lands and improving access to public lands. You can confirm for yourself by accessing the public lands statements for Senator Tester, Senator Daines, and Congressman Gianforte.
Claims to the contrary that any of these three politicians are attempting to sell or privatize public lands are a false political narrative.
Montana is being flooded with money from out of state to influence its politics and economy. The goal is to promote a radical environmental agenda and weaken Montana’s economic sectors that utilize natural resources. Many of the groups deeply involved in this web of influence—the Montana Wildlife Federation and Backcountry Hunters & Anglers, for instance—make every effort to appear to be grassroots organizations when in fact they are funded nearly entirely from outside Montana.
